The dictionary defines legacy as something transmitted, or received by a predecessor. In all the years I have known Stella, I can't remember one time she ever talked bad about someone else. She never told me any gossip, but was a very caring person and loved her family deeply.
When she was so sick herself, she flew to her mother when she needed her. When she could not be with her, she called her every single day to encourage her.
When Stella got sick, I never heard her complain, she was always upbeat, and she always made you feel special when you came to visit. She made you feel important and you knew she was glad to see you.
Jesus said, "and I give you yet another commandment...Love one another".
Stella transmitted the legacy of Love.
